What is Renters Insurance?
All your renters insurance questions, answered.
Renters insurance is similar to a homeowners policy, but is designed to fit the needs of someone renting an apartment, home, condo or other type of property. A renters policy covers your personal property if it’s damaged by a covered event, like theft, fire or a storm. And it includes liability coverage for medical bills and lawsuits if a guest is accidentally injured in your apartment or home. It’ll even cover you for additional living expenses if your place becomes unlivable due to a covered event.
Whether at home, at work or traveling across the country, renters insurance has your back. Take a look at the benefits of having renters insurance for your apartment or home with American Family Insurance and gain peace of mind that you’re protecting everything that matters most.
Renters insurance doesn’t cost as much as you think. There are a number of factors — like location, the estimate of your possessions and added coverage — taken into account when determining your cost, so the price for renters insurance will be different for everyone. But for the most part a typical premium for renters insurance is usually less than the price of one dinner out with friends a month.
Renters insurance is designed to help protect you financially from unexpected instances, so the cost of your renters insurance shouldn’t break the bank. On average, many people pay between $10-$20 a month for renters insurance. You may pay more if you add on coverages or increase your personal property or liability limits, but renters insurance is meant to be an affordable way to help you protect the things you work hard for.
We think so.
Consider all of your personal property, like clothing, electronics and furniture — your things add up quicker than you think! If the unexpected were to occur and you had to replace all of your belongings, would you have enough to cover the cost? Renters insurance is a smart, affordable way to help protect your pockets from potentially expensive unexpected events.
